Practical Lambing Course

February 13, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Practical Lambing course. Held on a farm near Gillingham – further details on booking. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

We have added this as a second option due to popularity in our first date release.

Participants will learn how to prepare their flock for lambing. Using a lambing simulator, we will teach people when and how to safely intervene with a lambing ewe.

Participants will learn how to correct simple malpresentations. Instruction will be given on how to correctly use a stomach tube in lambs, how to tail, castrate and inject lambs. We will discuss all the common problems that crop up in ewes and lambs in the lambing period and how to manage and prevent them. This course is ideal for the small holder or new staff in the commercial flock.
